FGI: A Night of Stars 2012

The Fashion Group International of Dallas has outdone itself.  This year's A Night of Stars event was another success.  The event was about recognizing rising stars in the Dallas Fashion Industry.  Northpark's Victoria Snee hosted the evening and emceed the award and runway shows.  The runway show was phenomenal, featuring Nha Khanh, Lela Rose, and Cassie Bumpous.  The show was produced by the legendary Jan Strimple, of course.  Off the runway, all the guests looked chic and stylish.

 I ran into some old friends and made some new ones.  Jan Strimple was working the runway backstage, and I finally got a picture with her!  I was so excited!  I also ran into Heidi Dillon, founder of The FashionistasEmilie's former personal trainer Marquette Falbo and SMU grad Grace Davis were at the event on business.  During the runway show, I met Mary Ellen Dorey of Dorey AromaTherapy and Rosanne Hart of The Hart Agency.  We had a fun time discussing the fashions on the runway and taking pics with our iPhones.  Rising Star Angela Scott, who is a shoe designer, was so cool.  Just a great way to top off a fabulous night!
